Does a Non-Custodial Parent Have to Pay Child Support Until the Child Turns 18 or Until the Child Turns 21?
Under Mississippi law, child support payments may terminate when the child is “emancipated,” which occurs when the child turns 21 or marries. The age of emancipation differs from state to state.
When a divorce is awarded, the Court may make an order touching the care, custody and maintenance of the minor children (under age 21) of the marriage.
Mississippi decides property division based on equitable distribution, and they are the only state in the U.S. that takes the name on the title of property into account.
